Ever feel the need to get inspired or to gain insight from someone you admire? Los Angeles offers a series of on-stage conversations featuring writers, actors, musicians, humorists, artists, chefs, scientists and thought leaders in business.
You don’t want to miss LiveTalks LA’s upcoming fall season. Guests such as actor/writer/creator Mindy Kaling, Supermodel Cindy Crawford, and artist Shepard Fairey are on the top of my list while others you may have not heard about are incredibly intriguing, like world thinker Richard Dawkins who has published 11 books and will be sure to kickstart conversations about science, culture, and religion. Globe trotter travel writer Paul Theroux and crime author Patricia Cornwell are just some of the fascinating minds you can spend time with this fall.
How about hearing an intimate conversation in one of LA’s beautiful spaces with Diana Nyad? She will share her firsthand account of her record-breaking swim, after four failed attempts, from Cuba to Florida, at the age of sixty-four–and of her extraordinary quest to live life at the highest level, in and out of the water.
The LaLaScoop we have enjoyed from past Live Talks LA events include Ariana Huffington at a church in Beverly Hills, author Mitch Album in conversation with actor Bradley Whitford at a temple, Gwyneth Paltrow in conversation with Chelsea Handler at a historic theater, and writer/reporter Malcolm Gladwell at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple.
